Alright guys... I did the ABS removal in my 96 GSR, but I cant find anywhere if it's alright to cut the plugs out.. I cut the plugs out going to the front wheels and disconnected the rear's.. My question is if I can cut the plugs that went to the pump.. I'm not ever going to re use ABS in this car and it will look a hundred times better with those plugs out..

Even if I need to connect wires to keep a circuit going.. Ill do what ever, it doesn't matter.. I just dont want to fry wiring.. The module is out and I was considering removing the ABS wiring harness but what a pain that would be..

I've searched google and nothing.. I think I saw something about it on TI before but cant find it again )-:

Thanks for any and all help at making this engine compartment look a thousand times better (-:

I guess as long as you pull all the ABS fuses ... I dont like the idea of cutting any plugs ever though.

Yeah cutting stuff is not a good idea. Maybe you don't want ABS but someone else might. If you could remove the harness without damaging it maybe you could sell it.

Me neither.. That's why I'm asking (-: It seems scary.. I also wanted to get rid the factory wiring and relay for the fans.. and just use a toogle switch.. So im imagining the wiring that I need would mimic the wiring on thr driver side going to headlamps and signals... It would be nice anyways.. easy to tuck.. With the big orange plugs it makes it hard to tuck..

Far as I know you CANT remove the ABS as it's part of the main harness. It's all intermeshed with the whole car's harness.

See when I had all the wires exposed it looked like alot of the wires going into the bigger plug ran to who knows where. But the other plugs the wires ran to the relay and to the module..

Still waiting for that one person to say "I've done it!! Go for it" LOL

Otherwise Im just gonna IDK (-:

I'm curious why our discussion didn't stay in this thread here?

I did mine this past year, i cut all the plugs, and pulled the fuse. 0 problems. if you take the ABS unit out from in-cabin as well then you're more than fine. only downside would be resell value, and if that's not a concern then you're fine. cut them and tape it all up so no exposed wires.

Thanks I knew someone has done it.... And resale value is... I would never get back what I put in to it.. So I will have it for ever I hope.. It's a 99.8% chance the car will never even see ABS again.. But it isn't a bad idea to remove the entire harness and sell a complete ABS kit... hmmmm

I would not waste my time removing the chassis harness ABS wiring. All generation three integras came with ABS (no market there), and anyone wanting to put ABS into their car (92-00 civic owners) would probably opt for the far superior ITR ABS system, and you've already hacked your setup so a complete ABS sale is already out the window.
